Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time –
I think Jesus is talking about loving the people we must live with, and work with, and rub shoulders with day after day. Some of these people can be very unpleasant, unkind, and unfair. They say things we don’t like. They take us for granted. They show no appreciation for the good things we do for them. Their presence makes our little part of the world very difficult. Could it be that these are the people Jesus had in mind when he asked us to love our enemies?
